Parallelisation of BICGSTAB algorithm for finite element computations
(20030903)We describe parallelization and implementation of BICGSTAB method for systems of unsymmetric linear equations arising in nite element discretization. Global matrix is not constructed, we use element by element ... 
Brief Introduction to Linear System Theory
(2005)The purpose of this paper is to provide the reader with basics of linear system theory. We consider a system given by ordinary differential equation of nth order. We show its transformation into the state equation (system ... 
Finite Element Formulation of Threedimensional Nonlinear Elasticity Problem
(200504)The purpose of the present work is to give a brief description of the finite elasticity and of its approximation via finite element method. We formulate the problem for the case of compressible elasticity. Weak formulation ... 
Finite Element Solution Algorithm for Nonlinear Elasticity Problems by Domain Decomposition Method
(20050606)The purpose of the present work is to give a brief description of the finite elasticity and of its approximation via finite element method. We formulate the problem for the case of compressible elasticity. Weak formulation ... 
Adaptive selection of face coarse degrees of freedom in the BDDC and the FETIDP iterative substructuring methods
(Elsevier, 20061024)We propose a class of methods for the adaptive selection of the coarse space of the BDDC and FETIDP iterative substructuring methods. The methods work by adding coarse degrees of freedom constructed from eigenvectors ... 
Adaptive Coarse Space Selection in the BDDC and the FETIDP Iterative Substructuring Methods: Optimal Face Degrees of Freedom
(Springer, 2007)We propose adaptive selection of the coarse space of the BDDC and FETIDP iterative substructuring methods by adding coarse degrees of freedom (dofs) on faces between substructures constructed using eigenvectors associated ... 
Topics in Structured Convex Optimization and Nonlinear Programming
(20070712)A convex programming problem in a conic form is a minimization of a linear function $\langle c, x\rangle$ over the intersection of an affine space $\{x\in \mathbb{R}^n:\;Ax=b\}$ and a convex cone $K$. In this thesis, we ... 
Geomagnetic Data Assimilation Using Ensemble Methods to Estimate Forecast Error Covariance
(20071126)Data assimilation is the methodology to assimilate observational data with numerical models for better estimation of the true physical states. This research focuses on application of ensemble estimation of error covariance ... 
SpatioTemporal Modeling of Rain Rates
(20071126)Modeling episodes of heavy rain is an important component of hydrological studies. Based on the analysis of shipborne radar data over the tropical ocean, we propose a new class of probability densities that capture the ... 
PROPERTIES OF BIOEQUIVALENCE TESTS UNDER RANKED SET SAMPLING (RSS) AND SIMPLE RANDOM SAMPLING (SRS
(20071126)Bioequivalence test procedure is used in clinical trials and environmental studies. In clinical trials testing equivalence is used to assess the different formulations of two treatment drugs and the relevance of this is ... 
BDDC and FETIDP under Minimalist Assumptions
(Springer, 20071130)The FETIDP, BDDC and PFETIDP preconditioners are derived in a particulary simple abstract form. It is shown that their properties can be obtained from only on a very small set of algebraic assumptions. The presentation ... 
Convergence Order Studies for Elliptic Test Problems with COMSOL Multiphysics
(2008)The convergence order of fi nite elements is related to the polynomial order of the basis functions used on each element, with higher order polynomials yielding better convergence orders. However, two issues can prevent ...
